The “Banking on Bitcoin” film covers the cryptocurrency since its inception by Satoshi Nakamoto. It follows the ideological battle underway between fringe utopists and mainstream capitalism. An in-depth coverage of key players in the space including Charlie Shrem, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, Barry Silbert, Erik Voorhees, Nathanial Popper, Alex Winter amongst others gives an insight into how they think this revolutionary cryptocurrency technology will shape our lives.
David Guy Levy said: “Our production has excelled in more ways than we could ever have anticipated. With the material we’ve managed to produce, and the interviews we’ve procured, we hope that the audience will find the final piece as engaging and thought-provoking as we do,”
Early pioneers of bitcoin sought to blur the lines of sovereignty and the financial status quo that have traditionally existed. After years of underground development, Bitcoin has since risen to the attention of the public as well as regulators of institutions the technology had subverted. Yet after landmark arrests of prominent cybercriminals, bitcoin, which has surged in value over the past month, still faces adversity from banks and services which find themselves disrupted.
